Figures that the day before the Mayan-predicted apocalypse, Tyler Perry would squeeze out one more movie trailer to leave us with for the rest of eternity. Titled Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor, the film stars Jurnee Smollett as Judith, a woman who seems to be at a crossroads with her marriage and career.
Here's the rather simple synopsis from IMDB:
A marriage counselor’s personal and professional life becomes complicated after she enters into a relationship with one of her clients.
The fact that Smollett is headlining the movie is certainly a good look. She's been in desperate need of a lead role worthy of her talent (though I'm not sure she found one with this vehicle). Lance Gross, fresh off his starring role in Matthew Cherry's The Last Fall is playing more of a supporting role here as the dull husband who, judging by the trailer, takes his wife (Smollett) for granted until she gets close to Harley (Robbie Jones).
Also, it looks like Vanessa Williams may or may not be playing her usual catty bitch role, but with an accent here. Oh, and Kim Kardashian and Brandy are in the movie in some capacity.
As for the clip, it just screams made for TV. The characters are, as usual, one-dimensional in a paint-by-numbers plot. But, hey, maybe the movie is better than the trailer. Hopefully.
